If you feel the need to escape the stresses of daily life, you might have thought about a vacation to a remote area. Remote areas can be the perfect way to disconnect, unwind and explore some of the most beautiful areas in the world. There are some remote locations around the world that are only accessible via private jet – the ideal way to travel.
The Galapagos Islands are famous for their breathtaking wildlife, so if you are an animal lover then this could be the place for you. The volcanic archipelago around 1,000km from Ecuador is like anywhere else on the planet with all but four being uninhabited by humans, which means that you are limited for accommodation options! This does mean that it is a peaceful and quiet place and somewhere that you can only access by a private plane.
Lady Elliott Island, Australia
Lady Elliott Island is another breathtaking place to visit. A coral cay at the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef, here you will find incredible marine life, including giant manta rays and turtles. It is also an island known for sustainability and you cannot drive on the island. It is also only accessible by a private jet and it is a scenic flight that will be a great start to your trip.
Necker Island is Sir Richard Branson’s own 30-hectare private island in the British Virgin Islands. As you might expect from a Caribbean private island, it is incredibly beautiful with white sandy beaches, turquoise waters and coral reefs making it the ideal place for a relaxing vacation. As a private island, your only option for access is a private jet lease.
Nauru is the world’s smallest island nation at just 8 square miles, so you are certainly off the grid here! Located in Micronesia of Australia, the island features a coral reef and sandy beaches while inland you have tropical vegetation that surrounds Buada Lagoon. As you might expect, there are no commercial flights to this tiny island.
If you are looking for something a little bit different, you could fly to Ittoqqortoormiit in Greenland. One of the most remote settlements on the planet, Ittoqqortoormiit is considered to be “the edge of the world” with just 450 settlers. There is enough to keep you entertained, though, with Northeast Greenland National Park to the north and Scoresby Sound (the largest national park and fjord on Earth) to the south.
If you are feeling the need to escape and enjoy a remote vacation then these are some of the best places to consider. All of these places are so remote that there are no commercial flights, so you will have to fly with a private jet and this can be a fantastic start to your holiday.
